Parish Magazine for July 2015
A big thank you to Graham Breese for renewing the Millennium Planter below the Whitton sign by Whitton Brook. It looks splendid! Also many thanks to Graham and Janet for planting and tending it. It's much appreciated and offers a colourful welcome to visitors.
Thank you to everyone who bought and provided plants and also for the return of pots. £35 was raised for church funds. Hope you have a bright summer! — Ann Kemp

Following the wedding of Ruth and Ed Riley, Nick and Bev Farnell kindly held a tea party to raise funds for Air Ambulance and Hands Together on the Sunday afternoon. It was a beautiful day and extremely well supported. Over £500 was raised for the two charities.

Text for the month
Our humanity is measured by our empathy and willingness to step into the shoes of others. The idea of sharing a migrant's experience by travelling with them and lending an ear as well as a hand is ingenious. This is a journey worthy of our support. . — An observation by Helena Kennedy QC on the walk undertaken by Lauren and Rachel Davenhill from 13th June-21st June.Archive of Previous Parish Magazines
